Easy Curls/Waves

Hello friends! Hope you have been doing well over the past month ;)

I love long, loose curls, but despise the time-consuming techniques used to achieve said curls. I may not have a problem taking extra time when putting my face on, but if my hair happens to be givin me guff, I just default to a ponytail. I have no patience with it. So when I find something easy to do with my hair that yields good results, I stick with it.  

I've been doing this style a lot lately, so I thought I'd share with you how I do it. It's easy-peasy.

I use hot rollers (they're my best friends). 
I spray each section with a heat protectant (Got2B Guardian Heat Protect 'n Curl) before rolling it.
I roll each roller towards the back of my head, or behind me/away from me...if that makes sense :)
I start in the front middle and go back to the nape of my neck; then do the sides.
 I leave the rollers in for 5 minutes or less (I wait til they're really hot before putting them in), take them out, then separate with my fingers. 
I flip my head over and then spray the hell out of it with hairspray (I use L'oreal Texture Expert Freezing Mist. Smells like candy!).

This technique is hardly groundbreaking, but it might have been helpful?

What are your tried and true hairstyles?

  1. I can't wait till my hair grows out to be as long as yours - its absolutely stunning! My default is def headband/ponytail combo - super easy,gets my hair out of my face and looks tidy :)

    I need to get some hot rollers - curling with an iron takes me forever! ♥

  2. Oh thank you! Yes I am a BIG fan of headbands and ponytails as well! Oh I highly recommend hot rollers, they are SO much easier and faster than a curling iron!

  3. I love your hair! It's so long and shiny! Even when my hair was longer, I usually resorted to a curling iron when I wanted curls but your hair looks amazing after using hot rollers!

  4. Aww Thank you :) I really do love hot rollers much more than a curling iron...I think they're less damaging to the hair.

  5. So pretty. Your hair is so long and healthy. I can not wait until my hair is as long as your. Gorgeous. X

  6. Your hair is so beautiful and shiny and the waves are gorgeous too! I also have some eylash envy now, your lashes are amazing:D
